pawn stars


We were extremely privileged to have an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet the father and son duo, Rick Harrison and Corey Harrison from the Pawn Stars at Brewerkz yesterday and we had a blast partying with them over some beers and pizzas.

We had a rather big feast that’s overladen with calories but well it’s a party and we are supposed to have fun and not worry about anything else!

Specially crafted beers from Brewerkz that are specially produced for the party.

Rick and Corey arrives at Brewerkz with style and with much fanfare.

As mentioned in our previous blog entry, the Pawn Stars is an American reality television series shown on the HISTORY and it takes you inside the colourful world of the pawn business. At the party, Rick and Corey appraised some items and one of them was a really old fire extinguisher.

And of course, nothing beats attending such a fabulous party with my dearest shooting pictures for this blog entry.

Long before banks, ATMS and check-cashing services, there were pawn shops and pawning was the leading form of consumer credit in the United States until the 1950s. Even till today, pawn shops are still helping everyday people make ends meet and this explains why the pawning business in Singapore still exists.
So what is Pawn Stars all about?

Well, Pawn Stars is an American reality television series, shown on History, and produced by Leftfield Pictures. It takes you inside the colorful world of the pawn business and at the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop on the outskirts of Las Vegas, three generations of the Harrison family; grandfather Richard, son Rick, and grandson Corey, jointly run the family business, and there’s clashing and camaraderie every step of the way. The three men use their sharp eyes and skills to assess the value of items from the commonplace to the truly historic, including a 16th-century samurai sword, a Super Bowl ring, a Picasso painting and a 17th-century stay of execution. It’s up to them to determine what’s real and what’s fake, as they reveal the often surprising answer to the questions on everyone’s mind, “What’s the story behind it”? and “What’s it worth?”

Rick Harrison, 48, has been in the pawn business for 28 years and is an expert when it comes to spotting anything fake or stolen; and Corey Harrison, 30, began working at the pawnshop when he was nine and is expertly trained in the art of appraisal.

As home to the Pawn Stars, History premieres Season 9 [starting 22 July] and Season 10, delivering all-new Pawn Stars episodes every Monday at 10pm for the remainder of 2013! The History channel is available on StarHub TV Ch 401 and HD Ch 455.
